A bastion of Berber culture
‘Marrakech is not only a fantastic city, it is also a symbol of the Morocco that once was, and which still survives. To understand Marrakech you must know that it never has been Arabic, always Berber. While Arabs and Berbers mingle in most parts of Morocco, Marrakech remains a bastion of Berber culture. Its position has been strong for such a long period, that it is from 'Marrakech' that 'Morocco' is derived. Marrakech is situated close to the Atlas mountains , and on most days you can see blue mountains covered with snow over the rooftops. The setting of Marrakech is splendid, the city exceptionally beautiful, and the liveliness almost never ending.’
